RR107 Fight or Flight Response
Expletives: Whoopass and Damn in the episode
Ever wonder what goes on in your body and brain to trigger the fight or flight response? Well, Ried talks about how this works and touches on why some folks get PTSD and others don’t.
She talks about the HPA Axis and refers to a meta study which confirms that executive brain function is affected during the stress response. She also goes into the nuance of how the working memory, inhibition and cognitive flexibility are impacted.
